The reason behind this decision, as the Health Minister put it, is because "people think they're smarter than the rules" and will just keep adding food to their bill just so that they can continue drinking alcohol.

"But it doesn't work like that. It's done — no more food after midnight in bars," Dubé said firmly.

Quebec bars are also now required to log all customers who enter their establishments.
